THE WHY?

We have always been told that exercise, along with diet change will help get rid of the silent killers that are prominent in the African-American community.  The top three causes of death among African-Americans are heart disease, cancer, and accidental deaths.  Two of these can be prevented by exercise and a change in diet.  This will also provide an extended life expectancy from generation to generation.  

TIP:

FAT burns at a rate of one calorie per pound.  

MUSCLE burns at a rate of 10-15 calories per pound.  

This tells us that instead of tons of cardio, we should lift more, and perform no more than 30 minutes of cardio 3 days a week.  You should only extend your cardio time to an hour or more 5-6 days a week if you are preparing for something in particular, ie, a vacation, challenge, wedding, etc.

Cardio is to look good on a scale, weight training is to look good naked in real life.
